The traditional career route for researchers of staying in academia isn’t for everyone, but do you know what other options are available? How about becoming a founder of your own company or becoming a successful entrepreneur based off your research? 

Join us for ‘Science & Success - the link between STEM and success in sustainable entrepreneurship’ a pre-recorded event showcasing five women who used their experience in STEM to do just that. From growing athletic shoes with bacterial nanocellulose, recycling methane to create clothes via methanotrophs and using microbial fuel cells to clean wastewater; these entrepreneurs have a vast array of tips to share to help you follow in their footsteps and tackle global issues sustainably, whilst building a business.
